On Sat. Feb. 11, A.T.A. Gallery’s OTHER CINEMA inaugurates its 22nd year of programming with “Outsourcing Torture”, a critical look at the egregious violation of international human-rights guarantees being carried out by the Bush administration.
UCB experimental geographer Trevor Paglen and investigative journalist A.C. Thompson team up for an energized audiovisual account of the shell games and front companies set up by the CIA to sub-contract out the abduction and delivery of terror suspects to off-shore dungeons. Paglen’s expertise in the plane-spotting sub-culture led to the trail of the sleazy, politically connected gangsters who are running the operations out of Nevada.
An hour of supporting media-artworks follow Q&A and beverage-break, including Andrew Gilligan’s Brit-TV “Kidnapping American Style”, Katherin McInnis’
“Spook Speak”, and other pointed pieces.
Doors open at 8 for artists’/authors’reception; showtime is 8:30. Admission is $5.
